Editor of Britain’s Jewish Chronicle claims people are fleeing Paris

The scene today where around six people were being kept hostage in a Kosher supermarket, which was not chose by ‘fluke’, Mr Pollard said

Jews are fleeing terror-hit Paris because of growing anti-Semitism in France, one of Britain’s most influential Jewish journalists said today.

Stephen Pollard, editor of the Jewish Chronicle, spoke out after an Islamic terrorist took six people hostage and held them captive in a Kosher supermarket in the French capital.

This afternoon police ordered all shops in a famous Jewish neighborhood in central Paris to close.

The mayor’s office in Paris announced the closure of shops along the Rosiers street in Paris’ Marais neighborhood, in the heart of the tourist district and less than a mile away from the offices of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo where 12 people were killed on Wednesday.

Hours before the Jewish Sabbath, the street is usually crowded with French Jews and tourists alike.

Mr Pollard said today’s terror attack in Paris, linked to the massacre at the office of Charlie Hebdo, will force more French Jews to flee the country…

  • When K and I were in New York last summer we attended an Anti-Israel demo. While waiting for Kick-Off we struck up a conversation with a woman who as it turned out was both French and Jewish. She had emigrated to the USA after her application to Canada was rejected. She was from Paris and explained she left because of the growing anti-Semitism. She also stated that her relatives over’ome were all leaving Paris for the country side where it was safer for them.

      If I was Jewish I’d have already left europe as it’s really no longer safe for them.

      Why not Israel? Lord knows that’s the only halfway safe place for Jews anywhere. Better weather too.

      Canada rejected her application?! Oh, yes, only if you’re from Syria can you be accepted. I would consider those who are Jewish coming from Europe are refugees….gee this sounds familiar.

      I don’t know why they would want to come to Canada we might not be as bad as France but were not far behind.
